Jans fly-fishing guides have fished the best rivers and streams, can pinpoint the hatches, and have obtained exclusive access to some very special waters. Jans’ guided trips provide opportunities to fish a variety of waters locally, nationally, and internationally.
For more information call our Experts at Jans at 435-649-4949.
Fishing Location: Jans' guides will take you to a variety of great fishing spots less than an hour outside Park City. Our guides have been fishing the local Weber, Provo, and Strawberry Rivers for many years. We will take you to one of these locations or even to the 9 miles of private water on the upper Weber River at the exclusive Thousand Peaks Ranch.
Middle Provo River-
The Provo is a blue ribbon trout stream, and it’s a river with big brown trout just waiting for you. There’s also an occasional cutthroat lurking in the shadows. The fish are big and plentiful, and the Jans guides know just where to find them. The Middle Provo runs from the dam at the Jordanelle (about 15 minutes from Jans) to the Deer Creek Reservoir at the mouth of Provo Canyon. The fly-fishing is easy and fun because of the open banks and easy wading, and the fish are challenging enough to make catching them a prize.
Lower Provo River-
The Lower Provo is incredibly scenic, flowing through Provo Canyon with its steep canyon walls, amazing Bridal Veil Falls, and dramatic rock formations. Provo Canyon is home to Robert Redford’s Sundance Resort, and it is where some of the incredible cinematography for the movie “Jeremiah Johnson” was filmed. The Lower Provo is narrower than the Middle Provo, and the fishing is a little more challenging than the Middle Provo, but it presents more advanced anglers with a fun fly-fishing challenge in a gorgeous setting.
This tucked away section of Strawberry River is a great fly-fishing spot that locals like to keep quiet about. With low traffic and excellent dry fly fishing, Pinnacles is a great piece of water for anglers who understand how to read the currents and the bugs. This is a place we often recommend for returning fly-fishing tour guests who have shown themselves to be skilled at the sport and likeable enough to spend a whole beautiful day outside with.
Currant Creek is a beautiful little section of the Strawberry River out by Heber, with incredible dry fly fishing. This local treasure of an area is public land but it’s off the beaten track so it’s quite peaceful. Currant Creek is a great getaway for the proficient angler who cares to enjoy a day trip with a picnic.
No half day rates are available for Currant Creek fishing trips.
Jans has exclusive fly-fishing access to more than 8 miles of the upper Weber River within the boundaries of Thousand Peaks Ranch – and yes, that’s how many peaks it has. Because of the privacy afforded by Thousand Peaks, you generally have more than a mile of river all to yourself, and you are unlikely to see anyone else besides those in your party. The fish are plentiful but crafty, and they present a wonderful challenge for intermediate to expert anglers. There are brook trout, cutthroat, and even graylings, and the Jans guides can show you where they are and what they are biting. It’s a fly-fishing adventure you will never forget, and some people like it so much they become members of Jans Anglers at Thousand Peaks.
o Add a $50 rod fee to the usual Jans guided trip price for the privilege of fishing these spectacular private waters.
Magnificent Falcon's Ledge overlooks eight superb fisheries. Just step out the cabin’s front door and catch a trout to write home about! The private waters of Stillwater Canyon thrive with big Browns, Rainbows, Donaldson Steelhead and Cutthroat trout. Also, enjoy casting drys to big cruisers from April through October.
No half day rates are available for Falcon’s Ledge.

Weather: The summers around here are mild, sunny, and beautiful. The winters are pretty cold but most days are sunny; for winter fly-fishing you’ll want to dress in layers, wear a hat, and fingerless gloves, and maybe even bring footwarmers. Spring and fall, you never know, might be anywhere from pleasant to rainy to snowy - bring layers so you have options to keep up with the changing weather.
